Panch Phoron

Panch Phoron

Panch Phoron is a Bangladeshi spice mix, literally translated as ‘Five Spice’.  Quite different to the Chinese version of Five Spice, Panch Phoron contains a mix of pungent whole spices which are great at adding depth without heat.  To use, take a generous pinch (or up to 1 tsp) and fry the whole spices in plenty of hot oil for a few seconds until they start to pop, releasing their flavours into the cooking oil, then add remaining ingredients.  Beware – burning the spices will add a bitter taste to the dish

Great with Bhaji, Samosa or vegetable side dishes




  • Mix together and store in an airtight container until required
